So, you are going to Collaborate (or thinking of going) and you wonder if, as a MySQL beginner, there will be enough content for you. Or you wonder if there will be too much, and how you will ever decide on what to go to. I have put together this list of what I would…
Yesterday was actually my second day at Hotsos, 2011.Have a look at my post to see what kind of interesting tidbits I have to share.
Tommy Stanton from the Los Angeles Perl Mongers let me know that he gave a presentation on Galuga in January (slides are available here). He also tinkered with the mozzarella-toned beast, and his patches should soon percolate to the pallid cetacean’s GitHub lair.
For those of us speaking at Collaborate, do not forget that for one-hour sessions, presentations and white papers must be uploaded by Tuesday March 1st – tomorrow! As discussed in the speaker webinar, all one-hour presentations require a white paper in addition to a presentation, and neither are optional. There are white paper and presentation…
Database Servers are humming along, and the people who manage them, interact with them or are just in awe of them are busy in blogging about them. This inspires our next Log Buffer, Log Buffer #214.
Most of the time, I hack applications together because I have an itch that badly needs scratching. But, sometimes, I also build up apps for the sake of trying out and experimenting with new technologies. The process I’m following for those latter apps is what I call Awesome Driven Development, or A.D.D. for short. Here’s how it’s done.
One week from today, on Tuesday, March 1, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM US Eastern Standard Time (UTC-5), I will give a free ODTUG webinar on “Finding Query Problems Proactively With Query Reviews” using mk-query-digest. This presentation will show how to review the queries in your system on a one-time or ongoing basis. Being able to…
A few days ago I learned about this year’s NoCOUG SQL Challenge and decided to to put the gray matter between my ears to work. I’ve been teaching a MySQL course this week and my first impulse was to use my MySQL VM to test my solution attempts. However, I eventually decided to use Recursive Subquery Factoring to solve the proposed problem and had to switch to an Oracle 11gR2, since it’s the only database that implements this feature that I know how to use (are there any others?). I was happy with my solution, but frustrated that I couldn’t run it on MySQL. So I decided to try to make it somehow work on MySQL.
Seems that our André Araujo has already spilled the beans and revealed his solution to the second edition of the NoCOUG SQL Challenge.
Now, I can’t let him have all the fun, can I?
Here is the next latest and greatest DBD::Oracle for your programming pleasure. This time round we have cleaned a few compiler warnings and fixed up a few of the tests. Thanks to H. Merijn Brand and Charles Jardine for those.
